“Great hotel near college apartments”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

This is a great hotel to stay in if your JMU student lives in Sunchase Apts, Stonegate Apt, or any of the others in that area. It's new, clean, safe, decorated sort of funky, near the interstate, has very comfortable beds and is less than a mile from the apartments. Plus, the staff is great, friendly and helpful. The coffee is excellent, but the breakfast is just ok, especially the bagels which are hard. None of the hotels in Harrisonburg are high end, but this is definitely one of the best.

We always like the Faifield Inn and Suites (A part of the Marriott chain) This one was especially good. Large comfortable room. Nice, nice beds and a quiet running AC. The breakfast was better than average. Had it all.
Some TLC went into the cleaning of the room. We left a little something extra to show our appreciation of job well done. And the price of the room was very reasonable. We've stayed in a few pretty bad places on our many trips that cost much more. The desk and breakfast attendants were excellent. We were (as Daw77 was) fleeing Irene from NH. It felt good to be treated so well. Signed...."The Asphalt Kid"

Room Tip: Get a top floor room. No noise above you.

I was looking for a place to stopover on I-81 in Virginia. I was a little hesitant because this required driving into town instead of being right next to the interstate but it took us less than five minutes to get there after leaving the highway. Definitely worth it! This place is completely clean, bright and comfortable. I was surprised to see a little market near the front desk with real food that could be fixed in the microwave for our dinner. That saved us from having to go get fast food somewhere. There is a great hot tub and pool with big towels supplied. Beds were completely comfortable and the breakfast was better than most in this price range. It's in a quiet area and the view was pretty good from our window. We had very little contact with the staff because there were no problems but front desk people were efficient and friendly and breakfast attendants were always around filling things. I hope all Fairfield Inns are like this one, I would definitely stay again.

This is the worese hotel I have ever stayed at. The rooms are so tiny you can barely get your luggage in the room. Their service is crappy and managers as well. The breakfast was ok since it was free. But never was stocked enough for the amount of people. I was their for 3 nights and wanted to check out the next day. Never again will I stay at this hotel.

My husband and I stay in Marriotts a lot BUT this Fairfield was EXCEPTIONAL! ALL the employees....front desk, housekeeping and the ladies at breakfast went out of their way to be so nice. It is a GREAT town also ! Living in a hotel with a 7 month old and a 3 1/2 year old could have been exhausting for my daughter and I BUT the employees here made our stay very comfortable! I would go back anytime !!!

Room Tip: We had a king bed, pull out sofa and they profided a pack-n-play ! Huge bathroom! Also loaned us a D...

We did not have a reservation but were totally exhausted from traveling that day. The hotel desk staff was courteous, professional and friendly even when we presented a Room Saver coupon. The room was clean, pleasing and very comfortable. Internet service perfect. Nice area to explore. Staff was helpful with dinner suggestions. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. Love Marriot's for their consistent standards.

I recently blocked out a series of rooms at this hotel for my wedding and the staff was great and I found them very accomodating. They even facilitated the rental of a van to transport some of the guest to the reception! The hotel is around a year old so the room and lobbies are in good shape eventhough it is a little more expensive than the near by courtyard I would say it is the better of the two hotels. You arent going to find any swang hotel in harrisonburgh so for the area this is a solid hotel.
